Bensalem, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/30/2014 -- A man lost his ability to support himself and his family when self-employed flooring contractor Joseph Keys suffered an accident at the Keystone Floor Products Co. warehouse. According to his complaint, Mr. Keys was struck by a carpet extending from a forklift when the operator drove too close. He was forced to undergo hip replacement surgery as a result of his injuries. However, West Virginia personal injury attorney at www.heavenslaw.com Christopher J. Heavens was able to recover $900,000 for Mr. Keys.
